Introducing our Landscape Improvement Series: Contemporary Front Entrances
Over the next few months we'll be sharing various projects from our portfolio with you of different styles and aesthetics.
This month we are featuring two inviting walkways leading up to the front entrances of contemporary homes.
To create an inviting walkway -- and often times a staircase leading to a home's front door -- we create a design that complements and considers the home's architectural style and neighborhood vernacular while also providing a safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing welcome to the home.
Take a look at these two contemporary style homes with complimentary entrances.
A varying-length staircase breaks up this tall, front facade and seamlessly fits into the topography of the site. A layered, linear planting at the foundation further accentuates the clean, horizontal lines. See more of this project under Reservation Road on our website.
This unique, front entry comprised of local granite borders a loose aggregate walkway. The granite inserts create a fun, rhythmic, and graphic element leading up to the statement stairs. The exfoliating bark of the river birch trees complements the cedar siding of the home creating a cohesive feel. See more of this project under Fish Brook Overlook on our website.
